New lease of life for Katie’s

AN Edinburgh eatery has been given a new lease of life after changing hands in a deal brokered by The Restaurant Agency.

• Katie’s is under new ownership.

Katie’s Diner on Bruntsfield Links was acquired by Rachel and Phil White – a chef – for an undisclosed sum from an asking price of offers over £25,000 for the leasehold.

The new owners have relaunched the venue as Katie’s Edinburgh.

The Restaurant Agency’s Alan Goldie, who handled the sale on behalf of Geoff and Kate Ness, said there was “strong interest” in the unit given its “pedigree and positioning overlooking the Meadows”.
